How exactly The Situation plans to maintain his new found sobriety on a show fueled by alcohol is unclear but the 'Jersey Shore' star is bound and determined to return for the show's sixth season, drunk or not. "Bound" is the key word here, as The Situation will be forced to miss a court date in his ongoing legal battle with Abercrombie & Fitch due to his contractual obligations to appear on the MTV hit this June.

So what does this mean to the upcoming season of 'Jersey Shore' and what did Sorrentino himself tweet about the news?
